Not too far from Fauquier lives a couple originally from Germany, who are very good friends of ours. Klaus and Erika built their little paradise away from the noisy hustle and bustle of the big cities. Their log house and their garden are surrounded by cedar and fir trees granting them total privacy with the exception of bears, squirrels and racoons which often pay them a visit, especially when the walnuts are getting ripe. Their property, directly located at the Arrow Lake, fits the title of my photo series to a T. Last week this lovely couple invited us to taste their home made rhubarb pie and to view the flowering rhododendrons in their yard. Here is a sample of the photos I took that memorable afternoon. Enjoy.
